Our Nursery/ECD Classrooms Completely Destroyed by the flood Waters
By James Omolo - Project Leader
The Remains of our ECD classrooms
As the rains continues to pound heavily in the western side of Kenya the flooding waters has really caused more harm to Several schools which have been submerged in waters and many children left to stay at home as schools re opened early this year. At our own school we had a very divasticating experience when All our three classrooms for the smaller children in our nursery classes have been left without classrooms when all their three classes were brought down by the flood waters.
The three classrooms are already down and the others seriously damaged by these flood waters. While some other schools which are at higher grounds have been converted into evacuation centers where most families including women and children are being hosted after their houses were destroyed and swept by the flooding waters. The newly build classrooms within our school are very well elvated to withstand all these ravaging flood waters and are now being used by the children We are at our fourth classroom and moving and hopefully we shall be able to get good parmanent classrooms which are flood proof to our children.
Our school is now at the verge of closure after the flood waters weakened most of our classrooms and the three classes have already succumbed to the ongoing flooding’s and one of our pit latrines have also went down after the ground became so weak to hold it and it curved in. The whole pupil’spopulation now has only three pit latrines left standing which may also be a health hazard to these pupils.
We strive to complete and move these chidlren to the newly built classrooms for their well being since the flooding is not stopping any soon. With your support we are able to achieve this within the smallest time possible. Thanks so much for those of you whom have been so much of help to our school and we do hope that we shall overcome all these sooner than latter to enable thse children to have the best education possible and end the porverty circles they experience here.
